Deity Decoy LT Flat Pedal

“Rider Owned Company=Badass parts”

C138_100206520_1278698241

The Good: VERYYYY light, very low profile (so you snag on less rocks) and very grippy, oh yea did I mention they are freakin light!!

The Bad: Nothing so far, but I have only ridden them a few times

Overall Review: $100 isn't a bad price considering you are getting the lightest pair of pedals on the market, plus you can order them right off their website. When you buy deity, you get quality and piece of mind.

Chromag Fubar OSX Handlebar

“So this guy walks into the bar...”

C138_88514620_1273301991

The Good: Shape (bend)
Looks

The Bad: Slightly uneven finish on the lime green ano I got, can see patches of lighter shades of green here and there (mostly around the logos)
Pricey

Overall Review: Great looking bar, great feeling bar, slightly disappointed to get a less than perfect finish (would have expected flawless quality control from the factory at this price point).

2012 Specialized Enduro Comp Bike

“Best Bang for the Buck”

C138_screen_shot_2011_12_26_at_1.22.58_pm

The Good: It can pedal like a goat, fairly light, stock specs aren't bad, and the price is right.

The Bad: Suspension is not as adjustable as past versions, is more AM than FR, but can easily hold its own.

Overall Review: This is a great bike and is only getting better with time. I have the 2010 version and it kicks ass out on the trails, easily the best pedaling bike I've ever owned and looks amazing. Very upgradeable and rips at speed.

Deity Decoy LT Flat Pedal

“Deity For Life!”

C138_100206520_1278698241

The Good: This is definitely the lightest and most solid platform I have ever felt.. They look like a piece of artwork as well! Deity also offer a cheap rebuild kit once they do wear out..

The Bad: nada meng! Well, except they are so purdy I didn't want to get them dirty!!

Point One Racing Podium Flat Pedal

“Epic Pedal”

C138_97137570_1270100644

The Good: Super slim, super wide, super light. Pins that screw through the plate and stay in the body. Strong bearings. Flashy

The Bad: Expensive-but worth it.

Overall Review: These pedals are pretty intense. Just looking at them you can tell they are a crazy expensive piece of bike bling...and thats what it is. Bike bling. Super durable and light. Strong. More clearance. Just epic

Morewood Bicycles Zama Frame

Featured Review

“Do-it-all in one tidy package”

C138_92327560_1287507055

The Good: Perfect all around geo - not too steep, not too slack. Fun bike!
Versatility - run it with 2 chainrings and a singlecrown fork for FR/AM/DH, or with a straight up DH build for a playful mini-DH bike.
Predictable suspension feel.
Frame build quality (hugely improved for 2011)!
Postmount brakemounts on the frame.
Now available in 3 sizes.

The Bad: 150mm dropouts with 73mm BB - bit of a strange combo.
Should ship with the XPi adjustable main pivot of the Izimu - what's the point of a $50 frame upgrade?

Overall Review: I built this bike up as a do-it-all, running 2 chainrings but also a Boxxer up front, the goal being one bike to pretty much do everything with, from trail riding to DH. The frame replaces the Zuza in the Morewood lineup, although it leans much more towards DH as opposed to the Zuza which was a pure FR frame.Out of the box the frame quality is amazing, with neat welds and stickers now under the clearcoat, it really feels classy. The build was pretty smooth, just the BB needed rethreading on one side. With pretty average components (Boxxer, Saint cranks, X7/X9, dual-ply DHF/DHS Minions), the weight came out at 17.5kg - very Read More »

Demon Dirt Brigg Jersey

“Great freeride jersey”

C138_brigfront_333x500

The Good: Comfy and light. Plenty of room for pads.

The Bad: I still can't dunk like Shaq when wearing this.

Overall Review: Love it. Worth every penny. Not sure if they have any in stock still but pick up the "I ride for Nick's eyes" version and support a great cause while looking fresh!

Shimano DX SH-MP66W Clipless Shoe

“Stiff, Comfy, and Effective”

C138_101457120_1265401576

The Good: They feel great. It's soooo nice to wear a comfortable set of shoes while riding instead of uncomfortable XC/Roadie shoes. They are plenty stiff even on the hardest of sprints.

The Bad: They weren't free. The are obviously heavier than a $300 set of carbon soled XC shoes.... DUH!

Overall Review: Get 'em. I don't really have any complaints. I love them. They are comfortable to wear even off the bike and they don't look like XC slippers.
